The cornea is the most densely innervated tissue in the body, so corneal nerve assessment is extremely sensitive for detecting small sensory nerve fiber
damage as compared to other tests including measurement of intra-epidermal nerve fibers in the skin, notes lead investigator Joseph L.
To reduce spasticity, the neurosurgeon will cut some of the tiny rootlets that make up each sensory nerve fiber
promoted small sensory nerve fiber
regeneration in the test rats.
Metanx([R]), a medical food, alleviated diabetes-associated sensory nerve conduction velocity deficit and small sensory nerve fiber
neuropathy, and, unlike many other experimental therapeutics tested thus far, induced small sensory fiber regeneration, potentially due to correction of oxidative stress.
In an animal model of streptozotocin-induced diabetes, oral administration of timcodar dimesylate or other neurophilin compounds produced statistically significant improvements in motor fiber and large sensory nerve fiber
function, and normalized sensitivity to pain, compared to control.
Placement of the lead remote to the nerve also allows SPR's system to preferentially activate the targeted sensory nerve fibers
without activating pain or motor fibers, which is a challenge with other PNS approaches.
The ablation was performed as close to the posterior aspect of the cervix as possible and continued for a minimum of 1 cm posterolaterally on either side with the intended aim of destroying the sensory nerve fibers
and the secondary ganglia as they left the uterus and lie within the uterosacral ligaments," Ms.
Capsaicin works to release substance P from sensory nerve fibers
, and after repeated application depletes the neurons of substance P, she said.
The results showed that decrements in nerve function--a precursor to neuropathy--were limited to large and small myelinated sensory nerve fibers
, with a threshold effect at a TWA of 28 micrograms per deciliter.
Sunderland S: Rate of regeneration of I: sensory nerve fibers
and II: motor fibers.
We detected extremely excessive sensory nerve fibers
around blood vessels in the palms of the hands," said Dr.
More recently, investigators demonstrated that, in the development of lead neuropathy, sensory nerve fibers
are affected earlier than motor nerve fibers (Chuang et al.
